Day 3: Dig in the dirt.
Today’s challenge might just be tougher on you than the kids. Your goal? To set your explorers free to dig in the dirt. That’s right – order them to head outside and get dirty!
Buckets, shovels and a few favorite indoor toys can help provide some initial inspiration. You can also add some natural elements to the mix, like sticks and rocks.
But don’t worry too much about what your kids will do when you let them loose to dig in the dirt; they’ll figure it out. Trust me.
The Explorers dig for worms and roly-poly bugs, make tracks with cars and trucks, bury and “discover” rocks, and much more.
Don’t have any dirt? How about snow? Or sand? Both make great substitutes.
